Under the tutelage of Payto, Ovarn created his first Chardonnay, Dutty Wine, fermented on skins then matured in an egg.
Ovarn hails from St Elizabeth in Jamaica, bringing him a very Jamaican outlook on his evolution as a winemaker "in JAmaica they have a saying: The new Broom sweeps well but the old broom knows all the corners" .
Dutty Wine is a popular Jamaican dance from the late 90' and still popular today, with super stars like Beyonce taking on the move in her live perfromances.
Ovarn teamed up with Robin Clare for the label, a freelance artist originally from Jamaica now based in Sydney. www.robinclare.com
